Broadcaster (Current Channel): This icon denotes the person whose channel you're currently watching.
Chat Moderator (Current Channel): Specifically appointed chat moderators for the channel you're currently watching.

Any icon that is not listed above will be a special, subscriber only icon, which indicates the person has paid to subscribe to the channel you're currently viewing.
